I am really excited about my new solar power charger!  I have a couple of other portable ‘power cubes, etc.’ but forget to charge them; plus they seems to discharge quickly even when idle.  Soooooo, this unit has a clip for you to put on your luggage, purse, or briefcase and sunlight recharges it!  I also enjoy the 4 tips I received : ipad, mini usb, eensy round one perfect for my BT earbuds and one maxi USB that I doubt I’ll ever use.   But, hey, 3 out of 4 is great and that little one for my earbuds is hard to find!  And did I say it’s only $29.99 right now at Amazon???  Enjoy!!!

Ipad / Smartphone Stand

My d-i-l had one of these for my grandson’s mini-ipad, and I was so impressed I ordered 2 for myself. Great balance, sturdy construction, wide enough ‘lip’ that most phones and ipads with covers fit easily, small compact for travel; all around a great product that I gladly recommend and will probably buy more of as gifts. Prompt delivery.

Bluetooth Portable Keyboard

If you really want to take some speed notes, text and email, capture your ideas while they’re hot and have trouble typing on the ipad keyboard [I’m talking to us oldie-but-goodie, speed typers who can’t look at a keyboard and type a darn thing!], I found this bluetooth portable keyboard that I just love!  Runs on 4 AAA batteries [so always carry some charged up spares for those long meetings], drop it in my bag, b/t connect, and type away.  This little puppy works on my iPad, and Samsung Galaxy III android and Blackberry so I’m ready to rock!

ipad stand

I have used several cover/stand options for my ipad and they just didn’t suit my needs — so I went with a very basic cover/stand for everyday carry protection and then at my home office, I use this great adjustable stand that I really like [works with my cover plus it folds up, weighs next to nothing, and travels well!] :

Are You An App Lover?

Okay, I admit it … I get carried away downloading apps and then forgetting I have them, never use them, you know the drill.  But, darn it, they really are great ideas!

So I’m going to mention the ones here that I actually use and just because they fit into my passions.

First this one for Effective Entrepreneurs : FREE iPad Notes [not Notes Plus, nothing fancy, you can’t doodle or dribble, just plain ol’ vanilla notetaking at its best!].   I can have unlimited Note categories, they stay there forever so I can add/ update at any time, I can have links to click and zip where I want to go PLUS I can email my notes to myself [or others]!  That’s what I call really ‘slick’ and efficient!

I just love the Dummies blogs for talking techie stuff in layman’s terms.  Here’s their take on iPad Notes :
